I've never been to a judo contest yet where they have ever turned down the offer of help from a parent.
Any contest requires announcers, timekeepers, belt tying (for little Judoka), scorekeepers. And although it does take knowledge to do these things there is always someone willing to help you do it. It is often so much easier to show someone than to try and do all things yourself.
When I first offered my help at a judo contest I had the knowledge to do most of the activities but received a surprise when I forgot myself and tried to coach my students from the side as well. The realization that there was a whole other etiquette that you need to keep in mind when you are a helper and try to coach hit me in a whole other way.
